i went and looked at the v7 lineup at pro italia this weekend.
the guzzi stone is amazingly beautiful, light, skinny, did i say beautiful.
alas, they wouldnt sell me the "demo" they had, and he kept tryin to sell me a racer, but as i use it as my primary transport, the racer won't cut it, plus its not my style. i needed a bike by tuesday as i needed to go back to work, and my bmw broke down on saturday (wife said NO MORE classic BMW). pro italia said 2 to 4 weeks before they'd get another classic, or stone. so i had to pass.
the little 750 is a tidy powerplant, but with my size, (6'2 300lbs) i felt itd be too anemic.
i went and bought a new triumph bonneville instead. so far, pleased
